Kenya Children's Homes

Mashimoni Sponsorship

Children living in the Kibera slum of Nairobi are from one of the most impoverished communities in Kenya, in which the vast majority of children are born into a family living in extreme poverty. In most cases there is no money for food and clothes or any education. 

Mashimoni primary school, located in the heart of the slum, is changing that for almost 600 children.  Through Mashimoni, children are given a high standard of education, two meals a day, school uniforms and books and, most importantly, the chance to change their lives for the better. 

Through our Mashimoni sponsorship scheme, which costs just £10 a month, you can support a child’s education and food costs and give them a sense of pride that they have someone who supports and cares about them outwith their impoverished community.

As a sponsor, you will receive a current photo, school report and a letter twice a year, detailing the child’s progress.

Donations to the project can be made through or if you would like to sponsor one of our children directly, please contact our Perth office Tel: +44 (0)1738 633264 or email
